Bedrooms: 7
A substantial former Rectory completely restored and remodelled with Georgian Coach House to be developed in a private and peaceful setting.

The Old Rectory occupies a site which is thought to have had a dwelling since Tudor times, the property was then remodelled in the Regency period and again in the 1920s with arts and crafts influence. In recent years the house has been greatly extended and remodelled and now presents a quite magnificent and distinguished country house. The works have been carried out to exacting standards and all energy saving features and services have been thought of, providing period and gracious accommodation with all energy efficiency and modern living.

A pillared entrance porch has a bespoke panelled front door with Georgian fanlight above, leads into the reception hall, which is a room in itself and has limestone tiled floor, cornicing, fireplace with woodburning stove and bookcases to either side. A door leads through to the sitting room with a fireplace and bookcases, shelved cupboard, a wooden floor, cornicing and a shelved corner cupboard. The staircase hall has a beautiful elliptical Georgian staircase leading to the galleried landing and a limestone tiled floor. There is a well proportioned drawing room with exquisite carved marble fireplace and high Georgian windows and French doors overlooking and opening out to the gardens and grounds. Double panelled doors open into the study with a Chesney cut stone fireplace, bookcases and wooden floor. There is a cloaks lobby with cloakroom and a door leading through to the dining room, also with Chesney fireplace, a woodburning stove and an archway opening into an orangery with doors leading out into the garden. There is a boot room, a utility room and a door leading down to a cellar providing excellent storage and a door leading through to a mud/boot room with cloakroom. The kitchen/breakfast room provides great living space, the kitchen area being particularly well fitted with a range of panelled wall and floor mounted cabinets, a four oven AGA and a fitted Lacanche professional Range cooker with gas hob and electric ovens. There is a large capacity professional corner fridge and two dishwashers and a central island and French doors out into the garden. The living area provides space for a large breakfast table and sofas and has a Bath stone French style fireplace with newly fitted Esse cooking stove. Planning permission has been obtained to build a substantial orangery off the kitchen. The staircase with beautiful balustrade leads to the galleried landing extending across the house, with cornicing and a library area at the western end. A panelled door leads into the principal bedroom suite with a dressing room with shoe racks and built in cupboards and a well proportioned bedroom with double aspect wooden floor, cornicing and a door leading into the bathroom with free standing, extra large double ended ceramic bath and walk in shower. There are four further bedrooms on the first floor, three having en suite bathrooms. A further inner staircase leads up to the second floor where there is excellent attic storage space, a characterful bedroom with en suite bathroom and a further loft room giving scope for further bedroom accommodation. There is also a small kitchen area on the landing.

As mentioned, there is a detached Georgian Coach House adjacent to the property, which has planning permission to create a five bedroom living space, ideal for an independent relative or indeed for holiday lettings.

A neighbouring land owner has a right of way along a short stretch of the Coach House drive to gain access to a small field.
